Jorge J. Jara, 75, passed away on Saturday, July 19, 2014, in the comfort of his home. He was a native of Guayaquil, Ecuador, and a resident of Baton Rouge for 49 years. He worked as a painting contractor in the Baton Rouge area for 45 years. He is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Luisa Jara; survived by his children, Liz Jara and Trish Jara-Petty and husband Troy; Jimmy F. Jara and wife Janneth Alvaro Torres, Tommy Jara and wife Stacy Puccio-Jara, Henry Jara and wife Stacy Crause; 12 grandchildren whom he loved very much, Jason, Jonathan and Amber Petty, Haley, Alexis, Jeffrey, Carlos, Gabriel and Sara Jara, Joselyn Daigle, Kameryn and Henry Jara Jr.; survived by his two sisters Carol Harbour and Lucela Lormand; brother Guillermo Jara. Preceded in death by his parents, Adel and Belgica Jara; nephew Steve Lormand; brother-in-law Don Lormand. Jorge spent his life as a painting contractor working hard and teaching many of his craft along the way. Jorge leaves us with a lifetime of memories; we've laughed, cried and fought. It was a good life and he touched many people along the way. Jorge will live on always in our hearts, sometime his memory will bring a tear, but will always; bring us laughter, because that was his effect on people. He will be greatly missed not only for his great sense of humor, which we all knew too well, but by the kind soul we knew he could be when you needed him. Rest in peace Yoyo. Services will be held at Seventh Day Adventist Church, 4455 Jones Creek Road, on Sunday, 10 am until 12 noon with memorial service at 11 am. Pastor Luis Rendon will be conducting the services.
